HTSC 2020 Webinars
27 oct 13.00-15.00 - CO2 - Efficiency and Circular Economy
Edward Murray - Green Iron H2 AB
Reduction of Metal oxides without CO2 Emissions. A ground breaking energy efficient process for sustainable recycling of waste and residues from the mining and steel industry with a lower production cost, increased productivity and decreased environmental impact.
Rodolfo Manera - Birmingham University
One of the biggest challenges at the manufacturing market is to know how to deal with new materials used at high value engineering products, being heat resistant superalloys the leaders of this chapter. The market provides powerful machines and a huge range of cutting tools. The main solution should come through by the understanding of the metallurgical and mechanical properties of these alloys. My PhD research is based on the evaluation of the performance of new cutting edge microgeometries – specifically the chip-breaker – and cooling channels made by laser ablation on the cutting temperature and the material removal rate of aerospace alloy (Titanium and Ni-based superalloy).
Wang Zhou - University of Hong Kong
Enhancement of fracture and delayed fracture resistance in quenching and partitioning steels by martensite matrix engineering. Despite the excellent strength-ductility combination, undesirable fracture and delayed fracture resistance have led to critical safety concerns on commercial applications of quenching and partitioning (Q&P) steels. My work proposes a new alloy design concept of martensite matrix engineering to enhance the fracture properties of Q&P steels, while keeping the metastable retained austenite for good strength and ductility.
Ola Ritzén - Linde Gas AB
CO2-free heating of steel using green hydrogen as fuel

Larz Ignberg, Triple Steelix
Per Tägström, Mafi Group
We develop environmentally friendly solutions with efficient design and manufacturing methods
Thomas Davis - Davis & Musgrove Ltd/ Oxford University
PhD in ferritic-martensitic steels for nuclear reactors from the University of Oxford. M.Eng. in Nuclear Engineering and B.Sci. in Nuclear Science and Materials from the University of Birmingham. Tom investigate radiation damage of structural nuclear materials, steels, materials strategy, nuclear shielding, regulatory matters.
Alessandra Spaghetti - Sandvik AB
Potential solutions to withstand highly corrosive conditions in heat recovery systems
Simon Buckingham - Volvo Cars
Outline Volvo Cars sustainability ambitions and examine the sources of CO2 emissions in a vehicle lifecycle. Give an insight into how Volvo Cars are approaching the target cascade to drive change. Highlight the significant contribution that steel makes today in the CO2 footprint of our vehicles and consequently the support that Volvo Cars are seeking from steel makers to help us achieve our goals.
